    FIRST SECOND TO PUBLISH SIX VOLUMES OF HIT FRENCH MARTIAL ARTS FANTASY SERIES, ‘LAST MAN’

    By Zainab Akhtar

    Speculation about publishers First Second acquiring the rights to a book by French comics superstar, Bastien Vivèsfirst began swirling in March, and while I’d like to say I’m above such speculation, when it concerns my favourite authors, I’m just as readily excitable as anyone else. July saw things take a more solid shape, as a listing for the first volume of Last Man, Vivès’ co-authored series with Balak and Michael Sanlaville, showed up on various book retail sites, with a projected release date of March 2015. Happy news, but I’m here to bring you even better: not only are First Second translating Last Man, they’ve bought the rights to the first six volumes of the series, and will be publishing three books each year for the next two years.

    When profiling Vivès earlier in the year, I put forward Last Man as the series that would be most likely to have wide appeal and attract a larger audience: already a huge hit in France, it’s inspired by gaming and Japanese comics, specifically shounen manga, incorporating a rich fantasy adventure setting with character-drive storytelling and plenty of action sequences.

    Late to the game, I know, but this is what we’re reading. Once we get to the latest issue we’ll review the whole goddamn thing so hard!
Here’s a preview of the review:
They could end up just talking about the intricacies of sodomy laws in the South for the rest of the story’s dialogue and I’d still like it because the art is so fucking sublime!
